    I learnt how to properly make cookies withs this recipe and it never fails! The only thing I have to say is that DO NOT FOLLOW THE COOKING TIMING because the weather and latitude have a huge influence in the final product: I live in Cancun City. We are on a wet and hot enviroment on the sea level. I put 2 dozens on the oven and they take like 20 minutes to be done.

    I’ve made these a few times now and every time the are delicious and full of chocolate :) However they never really crispen up on the bottom and it’s kinda like eating raw mixture and always fall apart to pieces :/ Any tips???

    I was skeptical trying this recipe due to some of the poor reviews, and being my first time making cookies. However, I followed the recipe exactly, and they cookies were the best I’ve ever had. Phenominal.

    I guess this is a Martha recipe since it's on her website. But I really just followed Thomas Joseph in the video. Really easy to make and nice that he explained how adjusting the ingredients' proportions one can adjust the texture of the cookies to suits one's taste. Thx for this easy to follow recipe.

      Thanks for your comment though, I totally was going to bake them at 350 degrees celsius lol. By the way, I don't know Martha Stewart but I believe she's a well-known chef if Sonia was supposed to know she's American. Anyway, my point is that if she's a well known chef, she should just precise '350 degrees Fahrenheit' (or 350°F). (And .com doesn't means it's an American website, aaand calling someone retarded isn't nice to retarded people, it's not their fault and it shouldn't be an insult!) I hope I'll enjoy the cookies haha! I wish you all to... bake well?

      Let's not throw hate around. But if Sonia is non-Americanized enough to know what Martha uses for measuring her ingredients, then she should be careful about the "stick of butter" reference. In many parts of the world, a stick of butter is 200g or a little less than half a pound; much more than our quarter-pound sticks here in the States.

      Is Martha Stewart American or European? Sorry, but if you're making recipes from an American chef located in America, all recipes are going to be in Fahrenheit and imperial measures. When I make recipes on non-American sites, I Google the temperature conversion from Celsius to Imperial and set my scale to metric measures.

      The USA is literally the only country that uses Fahrenheit. The rest of hen world uses Celsius. So it's totally understandable to hate she was confused. Im from New Zealand and was confused too as I thought "wow 350 is very high!"

      jessicaleighh12, look, I know that Sonia could use some common sense but she may NOT BE FROM AMERICA, we use Celsius over hear in England and if you are new to baking you may not be aware of differences across the world of baking

      I don't think it's Martha's fault you almost burned your house down. Learn how to bake.

    First of all Martha ya munted for thinking these cookies would be an actual success, mine came out of the oven looking a mother f**king doner kebab. They were flatter than a pre-pubescent boys chest, and so buttery I have been barking like a mother f**ckung bear who woke up too early from hibernation. My esophagus is so clogged it feels like I've been smoking a pack of twenty every bloody hour. I'm not usually this salty, but I feel as if the butter has seeped into my actual arteries. I'm either stupid as [filtered] or ya recipe is completely twatted. Qqqqq x

    The the best cookie I have ever made. In fact, maybe the best I've ever tried. I made an account just to type this comment to let everyone know how easy and absolutely delicious these cookies are! I am vegan and used semi-sweet chocolate chips, replaced each egg with about 1/3 cup of applesauce, used vegan butter spread for the butter, and for fun added a little dash of almond extract and they were delicious! Made them a few days ago and going back to make me right now!
